My Online Schooling
for Local Authorities and Schools
My Online Schooling works with Local Authorities and Schools to re-engage young people in education who are experiencing a variety of challenges including low attendance, mental health conditions, physical health conditions and unmet SEN and vulnerable young people. Our support is applicable to pupils both with or without an EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan).
My Online School is an accredited Cambridge International School, offering full-time and part-time education, following the English National Curriculum to children in Year 3 to Year 13, with International GCSEs, A Levels and International A Levels offered as qualifications.
With flexible timetables across a range of academic subjects, EAL support, and health and wellbeing support classes, My Online Schooling fits around each child's needs and other commitments.
Learning takes place in a live, digital, disruption-free classroom, where all classes are recorded for safeguarding, catch up and revision purposes. All academic progress and attendance is recorded and reported to the relevant parties. Counselling, Extra-Curricular, School Community and Transition support is available to each pupil.
